We are a clean, oceanfront, and family-friendly motel right next door to the Kure Beach Pier. Restaurants and attractions are within walking distance, private oceanfront balconies are available, and state aquarium and ferry are right down the street. New for 2011, our family suite!!

This is not an upscale motel, but the staff is wonderful and it is clean. It is rundown and in need of painting, but you are close to everything in Kure Beach. We have stayed here for at least seven years and have enjoyed our stay. Warning: If you have any problems with stair

Are you pet friendly?
I could not speak to that since we had no pets for our trip. We did not see others with pets during our stay.

Yes, the wifi worked fine when I was there. I was in a room on the 2nd floor at the end farthest from the office, and I had no problem using my iPad. HTH!

"You can't see the ocean from the oceanfront 1st floor. The 2nd and 3rd floor oceanfront rooms offer great views from private balconies."
"Ask for ocean front unless you want to look right into someone else's room or have folks stomp across your balcony."
"Top floor has great views"
"Upper floor is quieter for those that want quiet."
"Reserve as early as possible. Oceanfront first floor rooms cannot actually see the ocean. For ocean views, choose 2nd or 3rd floor."
